SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN PATTERNS
The course should enable the student:
• To understand interrelationships, principles and guidelines governing architecture
and evolution over time.
• To understand various architectural styles of software systems.
• To understand design patterns and their underlying object oriented concepts.
• To understand implementation of design patterns and providing solutions to real
world software design problems.
• To understand patterns with each other and understanding the consequences of
combining patterns on the overall quality of a system.
